on the folks that are making a difference. (vo) here's how you can connect with the gavin newsom show. >>i'm an outsider in the inside. ideas are the best politics. >> gavin: it's pretty remarkable. the numbers speak for them but they bear repeating. nearly 900 million people around the world are starving. more 1.5 billion people are overweight. you've heard it from our guests tonight. we have to change our food system. it's not just about better information. it's not just about diet and nutrition. the world's food and food prices are closely linked to droughts, the floods and fires caused by climate change. so finding better ways to grow feed and feedfood and feeding the older is essential. use of food stamps at farmer's market. when i was mayor of san francisco, we started healthy and sustainable food programs. it was the first of its kind. the first of its kind that focused comprehensive on food from production, distribution consumption and recycling. we didn't solve our hunger or obesity problems, but at least we moved the bar. we moved it in the right direction. the creation of a san
to focus on the folks that are making a difference. (vo) here's how you can connect with the gavin newsom show. >>i'm an outsider in the inside. ideas are the best politics. >> gavin: finally tonight i just want to say one more time how proud i am of this country and the progressive policies we unleashed this week. the only way to move forward is it evaluate what works. that's liberated thinking. i have no hesitation in saying the way we elect our leaders is shamefully outdated and flat out wrong. it shunt take more than a year of campaigning to get out the vote and aspirations for public office should not be owned exclusively by the rich. we have a hopeful reform but we have a long way to go. we have to get money out of politics. let's put our innovators an entrepreneurs to work. as you hear on this show over and over, pollsters still make calls to landlines. and even though obama is our first president on twitter we have a long way to go to how we fully realize how we use social media to campaign and reform. stay with us as we reform. we'll have more guests in hopes of finding new less

were put to mayor gavin newsom and supervisor peskin, as whether proposition k was to be observed. they state and i quote, we are not support of the effort to merge taxi commission unless beyond proposition k. you are looking way beyond the authority that was imagined by the legislators or written into those three simple lines of text. parts of which are being flagrantly ignored. i have the duty to supervise proposition k. instead the entire waiting list of those people in good faith is ignored if the present application of 150-200 medallions is granted. lastly i would like to point out this is not a free sort of situation. this is unlike anything that any city in america is doing. san francisco mta is trying to go into the taxi business. that is not happening elsewhere. they are exceeding their mandate. thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good evening, i am a taxi driver, and i have been robbed many times and a gun at my head. and i come to the city and thank you for letting me talk. which is i also help the senior and i work night time and i help the drunk guys. i take them h
